Did you know that September has more of Our Lady’s feasts than any month of the year? Her Nativity, her Seven Sorrows, her Holy Name and Our Lady of Ransom, for her deliverance of Christians from the Mohammedan. Sadly, these great and ancient feasts of the Blessed Mother are often half-forgotten in the September rush.
The latter feast, Our Lady of Ransom, takes on a special poignancy this year, in view of the cruel persecution and slaughter of Christians by Mohammedans in Iraq.
At St. Gertrude the Great all these great feasts of the Mother of God are fully celebrated with High Masses, two of them Solemn, and so we thought that you might want to join us in spirit by submitting your alms and your intentions to be placed upon the altar.
We will also send you a holy card with a special prayer to Our Lady of Ransomfor the deliverance of Christians from the cruelties of the Turk.
We also invite you to assist at these High Masses, all of them at 11.20 AM EDT, via our live webcasts at this link.
